I enjoyed this short, funny novel about a woman living in NYC. I like Attenburg's writing style and the book unfolds in a non-linear fashion, structured like a collection of short stories. The main character struggles with some inner-demons and family tragedies and her story is sometimes dark and occasionally sweet. This is a good quick read about wanting, but also resisting, adulthood.

Structured like a collection of short stories featured with different lead character, not linear, but I only see some connections of the consecutive chapters.
Brutally honest, no surprise, though often heartfelt. I'm not keen on the theme of women being victimized.
My favorite chapter is "Actress", in a consistent linguistic style with the rest of the book, but flawless, with humor and compassion.
I was almost (but not) brought to tears by Andrea's interaction with her father in"All Grown Up".
The final chapter didn't work for me at all.

Repetitive tales of an immature, boring woman with few interests.
